NUKUU YA WIKI HII

1 Petro 3:15 
"Mwe tayari sikuzote kumjibu kila mtu awaulizaye habari za tumaini lililo ndani yenu; lakini kwa upole na kwa hofu"






        
Quotes from Pope Francis

 

"A church that limits itself to just carrying out  administrative duties, caring for its tiny flock, is a church that in  the long run will get sick. The pastor who isolates himself is not a  true pastor of sheep, but a 'hairdresser' for sheep who spends his time  putting curlers on them instead of going to look for others.Today we have one in the pen and 99 we need to go looking for."

 

  

Pope Francis - to the bishops in Mexico: "This is essential, brothers,... This isn't in the text, but it comes to mind now. If you have to argue, argue, if you have to say something say it, but as men, not behind the other's back; and as men of God, who can pray together, who can discern together. And if you went too far, ask forgiveness, but maintain the unity."





Pope Francis - Homily - the feast of presentation of the Lord: "And we also, as Christians and as consecrated persons, are custodians of this wonder. A wonder that calls to be always renewed; woe for habit in the spiritual life; woe to crystalizing our charisms in an abstract doctrine: the Founders' charisms, as I have said at other times, are not to be sealed in a bottle, they are not museum pieces. Our Founders were moved by the Spirit and were not afraid to soil their hands in daily life, with the people's problems, going with courage to the geographic and existential fringes. They did not stop in face of obstacles and the incomprehension of others, because they kept in their heart the wonder of the encounter with Christ. They did not domesticate the grace of the Gospel. They always had in their heart a healthy restlessness for the Lord, a consuming desire to take Him to others, as Mary and Joseph did in the Temple. Today we too are called to make prophetic and courageous choices."



Pope Francis - Presentation of Preparatory document for Synod on young people: "Even when the journey is uncertain and you fall, God, rich in mercy, will extend His hand to pick you up."
